Who should attend
This event is recommended for individuals who are interested in local democracy and the implementation of voter ID. It is especially relevant for those from local authorities seeking to learn about the experience of implementing voter ID from insiders’ perspective, including those across England, Wales and Scotland who will not have held elections with voter ID yet.

What others are saying about LGIU workshops
“It was really good to hear from both other local authorities and LGIU experts. The experts were excellent in keeping things as clear & simple as possible. The session was chaired well and I very much appreciate the speed at which LGIU put this workshop in place. I took quite a lot away from it.”
